Lol one's 5 minutes and one's 2 minutes long. The guy must have way to much time on his hands editing it down like that and literally misnaming the title just to try to get away with it.

I do BEE-lieve (yeah, I'm watching Wasp Woman) that short clips like that fall under "fair use" or somesuch, but don't ask me, I'm no lawyer. I don't even play one on tee vee.

The Wasp Woman is in the public domain anyway if it's the b&w Corman film. I know it was remade for Showtime as an R rated movie that was in color and that the remake is most likely copyrighted. If those clips are from the Corman original,which should already be on archive.org they're PD.

I'm no lawyer either but I have learned from a now-defunct, privately-funded alternative cinema site that as long as the clip does not contain more than 1% of the copyrighted material, it is considered to be for review purposes, and thus falls under fair use.

P.S. Godzilla is my inner monster too. Oh to be able to squash toy cities flat!

The U.S. Copyright Office in an information circular states that there is no particular maximum number of seconds, no specific number of words, no specific number of music notes, which can be used with permission which will be guaranteed to fall under fair use guidelines. I suspect that this 1% figure was just plain made up.

I'm very defensive of the Big G. Gammera may be the friend of children, but Godzilla's my inner child's buddy. Perhaps I overreacted just a bit.
